  • Flat Teddies

    Flat Teddies (3)

    Soft, cuddly and flat, the FLATOUTbear is a unique product used mainly as a comforting plush toy for your child to hug and cherish. They are made in China from 100% Australian sheepskin. Approximate size of 30cm x 25cm and approximately 4cm flat. They have safety eyes and a safety nose. Because flat Teddy is so soft and flat you will find that baby can lie on Teddy, hold onto him easily and cuddle him. Children love to bury their little fingers into the sheep’s wool. A ‘please phone home’ label is stitched in, with room for a phone number if FLATOUTbear goes missing. Meets Australian, New Zealand, EU, UK and USA children’s toy safety requirements. They are a great natural gift for newborns and, from my experience, the baby’s parents will love them.

  • Steiff Bears, animals & all things vintage

    Steiff Bears, animals & all things vintage (131)

    Steiff Antique, Vintage Bears & Animals + other items vintage The $9,000 Steiff bear below, is in near pristine condition. Plush mohair all over… When a child sleeps with their teddy and loves him dearly, he’ll get wear marks on one side of his face from being cuddled in bed, and wear marks on his chest from cuddles during the day. His joints will get loose from being dragged around and his ears will fall off and be restitched. His paw pads will also need patching over the years. This 1920’s Steiff has had none of that. He’s been loved, but now look how well a Steiff bear lasts… 90years old and almost perfect. Amazing!!! Better still this bear comes with a providence (a proven history). There’s a photograph attached of his original owner, with her bear, taken when she was 7 years old. Don’t be afraid to dress up your vintage bears. Older Steiff are often dressed by their owners to help preserve their arms, legs and chests. Why buy Vintage Bears and Animals? Any collector of antiques and old wares will tell you half the fun is in the hunt! The thrill when you happen along something that you know you can add to your collection – especially if it’s for sale at less than market value! Secondary market Antique and old Steiff Teddy bears and animals are highly sought after the world over. The better the condition for their age, the more valuable they are. At auctions in Europe and the UK old Steiff bears command prices up to AU$400,000. Early Steiff (before 1970’s) were all woodwool stuffed (its called excelsior). If you hold the Steiff up to your ear and give it a gentle squeeze, you’ll hear a crunching sound – a delight to a vintage bear collector – generally speaking, woodwool stuffed equals old! Turn the bear upside down – if you hear a clunk, he has a growler that no longer works. Squeeze his belly, he may have a squeaker that no longer works. Or even better, they may still work! That adds value! Not only Steiff were woodwool stuffed. Other German and European toys were made the same way. They do not have the trademark button in ear that a Steiff does, but they will be old. Some collectors seek out only Vintage bears and animals – they have such character, and they add charm to your collection – mixed in with new bears, or added to other poor souls… Animals look great paired with bears & dolls.
